G. COMPENSATION POLICIES, SALARY SCHEDULE, AND RATIONALE
Regular salaries are paid on a twelve-month basis; therefore, one-twelfth of the salary for nine
months' teaching is paid on the 29th of each of the twelve months in the year, beginning with
September 29. Whenever the 29th falls on a Saturday or Sunday the monthly check will be put in
the Faculty member's post office box on the preceding Friday. The College will deposit payroll
checks directly into a bank of the individual's choice, if that bank is a member of the Federal
Reserve's direct deposit program. The Director of Human Resources will explain to individual
Faculty members the deductions made for taxes, Social Security, Medicare, health insurance,
retirement, and other types of insurance.
The College participates in the annual Faculty salary studies conducted by the American
Association of University Professors and specifies that the data furnished may be published in
the spring issue of
Academ
e.
This data on average salaries and benefits by rank is, therefore,
publicly available. In all other instances, the College considers an individual's salary
confidential and does not reveal it to any source except as required by law. The Higher
Education Data Sharing Consortium provides information about salary for all member
institutions. Other data are collected by H.E.D.S.
Salary increases are made as the result of the recommendations of the Associate Provost through
personnel reports and conferences with the Provost. The Provost makes recommendations to the
President, whose decision is final. Criteria for salary increases are based upon and include, but
are not limited to, the following: effectiveness in teaching; effectiveness in the advising of
students; training and experience; research and creative activity; and contributions to the life of
the academic and surrounding community.
III.H. Employment of Relatives
Members of an immediate family may not be employed in any position that supervises or is
supervised by a member of his or her family. No family member may make decisions regarding
hiring, promotion, salary increases, performance evaluations, or disciplinary actions regarding a
member of the immediate family.
Immediate family includes spouse, domestic partner, parents, brothers, sisters, children,
grandparents, grandchildren, uncles, aunts, mother-in-law, father-in-law, brothers-in-law, sisters-
in-law, and extended family relationships: step children, step parents, step sisters, and step
brothers.
